Things to Think About - Courage is a love affair with the unknown

Things to Think About
By Pepper de Callier

“Courage is a love affair with the unknown.”  Anonymous

Someone once told me that for a leader to succeed in the 21st century they would to master how to become comfortable in uncomfortable circumstances, because the velocity of change and flood of information is too great today.  It’s not possible to know it all, as many leaders felt they did in the 20th century.

There is a change, though, I would make in this particular quote in order to make it even more relevant, in my thinking, to leadership in the 21st century.  I would change it to: Courage is a love affair with discovery. To me, a commitment to the discovery of the truth, versus searching for information that confirms a bias, is a sine qua non for today’s leader.

Good luck on your journey!
